thanks. the white house expects the senate to confirm chuck hagel as the next secretary of state despite the cuff grilling he got on yesterday's hearing. so far just one of his fellow republicans is publicly supporting him. it takes but one senator to block the nomination which really would make this a much tougher fight. mike emanuel is in d.c. what are you hearing from republicans tonight, mike? >> shep, multiple senators have told me chuck hagel did not help his cause with his performance at yesterday's hearing. they seem to think he will likely get confirmed based on the strength of democratic support. >> i think for cabinet office, 51 votes is generally considered the right standard for the senate to set and at that level, i think he makes it but i don't think he makes it with a lot of room to spare. >> a filibuster is possible. but a leading republican senator tells me he doubts it will succeed because enough g.o.p. members believe hagel deserves a vote, shep. >> shepard: any signs of any democrats bailing after that hearing? >> i'm told by leadership aids democratic support for ha
. >> this is a clip from chuck hagel's hearing yesterday. listen to senator james inhofe's source for his information. >> there is an article the other day in the "washington post" by jennifer rubin called "our dim witted state department." it's kind of an interesting article. >> michael, how do you get these guys to stop listening to the same wild conspiracy theories? they just live in a different world. >> i think it is a little bit of a different world in that sense. i don't get -- i don't get the direction and the messaging that the party is putting out this right now. i really honestly don't. i think that we really need to sort of step back from this thing and really assess exactly what do we need to focus on. is benghazi of all the things that are pressing the american people right now something that as a national party we should be fixated on. hillary clinton, yes, she served as secretary of state. did an admiral job. most people would say that. yeah, there was this hiccup with benghazi. we unfortunately lost the lives of four u.s. servicemen out there, ambassador and the like. so how do we no
by the republicans or the president, but they're holding it back. >> chuck hagel i'll bet is glad the week is over. he went through a grilling. >> the wringer. i think he found out that when you switch sides, maybe, from your close friends, that they're a little more bitter, more upset. the white house was not thrilled with his performance, thought it could have been better. they're sticking by him, happy no democrats peeled away. there are 5 democratic senators. there's enough to confirm him, and republicans i've talked to, i talked to roy blunt today on the msnbc show, and he said i'm voting against hagel, but ifili. >> sunday panetta? >> leone panetta. the defense guys are very fired up about what's happening. i know that a lot of people around town here care about this a lot. >> thanks, chuck. >> see you. >>> doug? cold out there today? snow this morning? what's going on? a couple days ago it was 72 degrees? >> like tuesday our wednesday? >> this is what january is supposed to feel like in our region. yeah, 72 one day, 66 the next day, 40, 50-degree temperature drops. we've seen a heck of a we
department. did you watch this? chuck hagel, why is he unprepared and what does it mean for his nomination. >> i have been handed a note that i misspoke and said i support the president's position on containment. if i said that, it meant to say obviously his position on containment we don't have a position on containment. constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is.

nomination than was chuck hagel the week before. he was far more confident, far more informed, authoritative. but this is the first time it was ever debated, the subject. i mean it's gone undebated. and i have to concede that much of the criticism, i think from conservative press is absolutely valid. if this were george w. bush and dick cheney and we had increased by sixfold the number of unmanned attacks on other countries that are not combatant countries, that were not at war with, there would have been far more hue and cry. and it is interesting that the president, the only criticism in the president seems to be among a few liberals, and the support seems to be from people like john bolton-- and so it's a debate i think we have to have, we should have and it's been cloaked in secrecy and secrecy is the sacrosanct secular religion of this city. >> woodruff: so this has stirred it up? >> i think so, because of the leaked memo and the system, we are having a debate about drones. and i guess if i want a drone policy i want it run by a franciscan, not a jesuit. but he didn't really defend it,
and a lot of it depends on hagel's confirmation. >> that vote is supposed to be next week sometime, right? >> yes, that is suppose pod be next week, but some folks on capitol hill said they did not want to confirm him until they talk to the current secretary about benghazi, so that the timing was not coincidental. >> and was secretary panetta update about how he is leaving and handing the defense department over to the successor? >> yes, he is proud of the record, and we talked a little bit about the legacy and how he looked at his term. but he is also happy, because this man has done long time service and at the cia as well for this administration and other administrations, and i think that he is excited to be going back home to california. >> he has worked hard and given a lot to the country as a public service, and going back to being a congressman from california and budget director in the clinton administration, and white house chief of staff and now cia director and defense secretary, and he deserves a little r&r. >> he is looking happy about going home to california. >> caramel, ca
